28. It's sad that he quit and was rehired as a "sideman"

I thought that "The Final Cut" was an unadulterated piece of crap, one of the few albums in my collection that I listened to once, and once only. I'd read something...probably in Rolling Stone...that when he was brought back for "A Momentary Lapse Of Reason," Gilmour and Mason were basically "Pink Floyd" and Wright was brought back in the same manner as a session musician. I have no idea what happened between "Lapse" and Gilmour's "Live In Gdansk"...which I believe is Wright's final recorded performance, other than the Floyd tracks on "Live 8." Hopefully he received the compensation he deserved.

I've pretty much heard every piece of available Floyd music, including the Barrett solo albums. I agree with you on Wright...on occasion, Floyd has been reduced to a "Lennon versus McCartney" style debate. The Beatles were more than Lennon & McCartney, and Pink Floyd was more than Waters & Gilmour.
